EventsAir team top of their game at ASEAN-Australia Summit

TEAM members at EventsAir ensured they provided highest level of accreditation and access control to help in streaming security at the recent ASEAN-Australia Summit.

The three-day conference at Melbourne Conventions and Exhibition Centre was attended by 23 heads of state and thousands of support staff.

Australian prime minister Anthony Albanese’s hosting of leaders from Laos, Brunei, Cambodia Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Timor-Leste required stringent security measures.

Diplomats, academics, officials, media, police and on-site staff brought the number of participants to more than 6,500 – all of whom had to be credited before being able to access a locked-down MCEC. 

More than 10 EventsAir team members worked alongside the ASEAN Task Force since July 2023 to check, review and process every approved attendee and then issue secure credentials to provide streamlined access to the MCEC, while maintaining the high security perimeter. 

“On-site we provided photo ID security passes to all attendees which had a radio-frequency identification [RFID] mechanism embedded in them, allowing us to be able to rapidly validate attendees as they entered the MCEC and accessed restricted areas,” said Chris Ridd, EventsAir CEO.

Security… Better Safe than Sorry

“Prior to entering the building, ASEAN attendees walked through RFID gates or were scanned by mobile RFID readers and their bona fides were instantly confirmed. This was all managed through the EventsAir platform,” he said.

“The ASEAN-Australia Summit was Australia’s largest meeting of world leaders held in Australia in the past five years and it was a privilege to be able to support the ASEAN Task Force and provide our deep major event expertise to ensure that the registration, data processing, and venue access control ran smoothly. And, from a technical standpoint it was flawless.

“EventsAir is a very critical part of the security and accreditation infrastructure of an event like the ASEAN-Australia Summit. We were very pleased that everything ran so smoothly and the on-site team, supported by our partner Touchpoint, did a fantastic job.”
